'time in the porch. Nothing wns seen of him froia
late yesterday evening when he went to his bedim- State CakkIac;:i in the Skvextcf.ntii Cex
til about three o.clo. k tins moriiino;, at which time TLuv. Elizabeth met her royal sister-in-law after

! heavy body falling on the roof, they immediately
! v in tr th.. ri-ir ni' the hotel and discovered tin- de- :
! cciis. d lying upon the ground in the agonies of death;
! they instantly gave the alarm but before any assist

! he jumped is in tiie lifth story of the building and
but fr a shed which extended from the second stury
i breaking the fall, he must have been crushed into a
I shapeless mass; as it was, very little external injury
j was sustained, but it is thought that nearly every

j I leecased was employed as salesman in the whole-
sale dry goods store of Hamilton & Graham until
; t ic first of the present month when he was dis
, charged on account of his intemperate habits, since
I that lime he has made two unsuccessful attempts to
i commit suicide once by taking laudanum which
j was tlis -overed before he had taken a sullicient quan
tity to destroy bis life, and again by taking two
..... ... --. -
ounces of chloroform as he thought, but as he was
suspcoien oi ine uuemioii, ne as given mm. ..........
instead. He was considered an excellent salesman
and but for his intemperance could have done well.
A -few months ago he joined the order of the Sons
of Temperance and promised to reform, but the ap
petite for drink strengthened by the indulgence of

was borne down away upon the bosom ot that

its crested waves the wreck of peiishing millions.

came on the same train with your uncle." So the.
little lady put on her things, and with the Chief and
her uncle, proceeded to the Mansion, and there met
her mother. The meeting was a pleasant one, and
the Chief was overwhelmed with gratitude at his
promptness and kindness in the affair.
Tlie little lady told the Chief that she was bound
to Detroit that no man accompanied or was tt ac
company her and that no one had swindled her of
money, of w hicb she had about $30. She had paid
but 25 cents to be conveyed from the cars to the
American, which fact is a compliment to the whole

was right. '

minds, that Young America has taken up its quar

Romance Extraordinary.
On Friday of last week, two individuals, calling
themselves Jack and Charlie, made their appearance
in Chambersburg, I 'a., anil while sauntering through
that town the latter attracted much attention ap
pearance, voice and manner seeming to indicate that

His companion Jack had drank Very freely, and be

of the barkeeper, who compelled him to leave.

ed a "knock down" would be the consequence, and
that he would "stay" with Jack under any circum

i uiiplaint having been made by a constable, tlie ma-gi.-trate
was about to commit them to prison. Char
lie became boisterous, threatened all sorts of vio
lence with different kinds of weapons, and was ti
nai'y searched. Xothing dangerous was found on
bis nelson, or with which ne could execute his
threats. Jack and Charlie went to prison, and

About seven years ago, Han Rice's Circus was in
Somerset. Her father, who is a blacksmith, did
considerable horseshoeing f ir the circus, and from
the visits of Rice to the shop, she became acquaint
ed with him. Rice endeavored to get Ler brother to
travel with him, but he refused. He then, she al
leges, persuaded her to accompany him, and up to
a short period, she has been in his employ. She donn
ed male attire li um the time she started, and has been
wearing it ever since. Her occupation in the circus
vas equestrianism and vaulting, and no doubt she

Equestrian, Signor Somebody, from Franeoni's in

with crimson velvet ; not much according to our
ideas of a coach, for it was really a wagon without
springs. Glass windows had not yet been thought
of; but it opened between the wheels with clumsy
side doors, each having a leathern convenience for
holding steps, called a "boot," on which individuals
of the company that the king or queen delighted to
honor were perched. A numerous posse of insides
were nacked into this sociable conveyance. Sir
Walter Scott most truly describes the coach of the
seventeenth century, when discussing the family of
Tillietudlem.

modes of belief or unbelief. There were members
of the Church of Rome, two grades of Dutch dissent,
besides Rupert, whose utter disgust of the contro
versies then prevalent had extinguished in his mind
all sense of devotion. It was lucky that no theolo
gical topic was started among persons of such close
contiguity.
An Austrian Detachment taken Tbisoners by
a Railway Lnolneer. Among the many lighter
passages of the war with which the Parisians amuse
themselves we find in the Sport the story of the
capture of a detachment of Austrians who were ta
ken prisoners by the engineer of the railway. It
appears that the Austrians were en route for Pes
chiera to reinforce General Urban, when the engi
neer, whose sympathies were naturally on the Ital
ian side, " switched oft"," and conveyed the Teuton
ic heroes into the allied camp. Here they were
politely escorted from the railway carriages by the
French soldiers who, with that amiable politeness,
for which the nation is distinguished, saluted their
enemies with " All those who are going to France
will please change cars 1" The feeling of the Aus
trians, on finding themselves taken prisons in so
ignoble a manner, may b imagined but not described.

Emplotment of Austrian Prisoners. The Oon

also said that the prisoners will be let out to hire to
agriculturalists and manufacturers svho may be wil
ling to pay them. The officers are. everywhere well
treated. They are free on parole, and may even
obtain, without much difficulty, leave of absence
from the places assigned for their residence. Those
who are married may send for their wives. Tlie
pay allowed them by the French government is fix
ed as follows : Generals of divisions 4-OOOf. ; gener
als of brigade, M0O0; superior officers 2100; cap
tains, lieutenants and sub-lieutenants, 1200.
Our Army Men Sent Back from the Seat
OF War. The European governments are not
disposed to communicate the secrets of their mil

Enquirer of the 13th, that private letters from the
Continent of Europe intimate that tlie American
officers who had been permitted by the United
States to go to the seat of war in order to gain
military insight into war tactics by observation of
the contending powers, have been rcfusod pass
ports to travel thither. They consequently return
ed to Knghind to awnit further diplomatic consid

riKST love. trie nrst giaa moments in our nrst
love is a vision which returns to us to the last, and
brings with it a thrill of feeling intense and special
as the recurrent sensation of a sweet odor breathed
in a far off hour of happiness. It is a memory that
gives a more exquisite touch to tenderness, that
feeds the madness of jealousy, and adds the lust
keeuaess to the agony of despair. Adam Btde.

Shingles. The Scientific American Fays that
